Clean/Organize Your Fridge and Freezer

When was the last time you cleaned out your freezer or fridge?  I mean pulled out that mysterious package from the very, very back?  The end of the year is a great time to clean out your fridge, freezer and pantry.  Toss anything that is outdated or you can’t identify.  Consider putting things back in groups (meats, breads, soups, vegetables, etc.)  I recommend taking a pen and marking the date on items for both fridge and freezer.  Even though you think it was just a few months ago, you would be surprised at how long it really has been in there.

 

Fridge Shelf

fridge shelfI used to struggle with getting the items from the back of the fridge shelf.  Or I would forget that something was back there until it started to smell.  But then I purchased this nifty shelf from the Miles Kimball company.  I love it!  It sure makes containing the smaller items so much easier.   It is called the EZ Slider Refrigerator Drawer.

An Organized Fridge

 fridge shelfOrganize Magazine did an article in May of 2008 that talked about how to better organize your fridge.  I love that they thought outside of the box.  They suggested using turntables for condiments, etc.   You can even use baskets to better contain items from getting lost.  Drawer organizers can be used to corral the smaller items like yogurts.  The picture here shows some of their ideas.  Don’t be afraid to use a  variety of organizing tools in the fridge/freezer.  You aren’t just stuck with what the manufacturer gives you!  And whatever you do, don’t forget to label items with the date.  I use a pen and simply write the date on things when I open them.
